IBM’s Big Green Data Center in Boulder

On June 17 IBM officially opened the expansion of its data center in Boulder, Colorado, which the company says is its “greenest data center in North America.” The 115,000 square-foot expansion includes 70,000 square feet of raised floor space and is part of Big Blue’s $350 million investment in Boulder, which is now IBM’s largest data center in the world at more than 300,000 square feet. This video from the opening event features a look inside the data center and commentary from IBM officials and Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter. This video runs about 2 minutes.
